When I tried to commit the file discussed in the original bug report to
a CVS repository, Emacs crashed with a segfault.  The file was
committed, so this happened after the cvs executable was called.  I
didn't do a thorough debugging session because this is very likely to be
a proliferation of the same bug, but if you can't duplicate it I will
produce a backtrace, etc.
